More easy Christmas kids crafts.

Again, it's all about me today. I have two more crafts to share with you. You can also find them in this free ebook.

Quick Glitter Pine cones
  • Pine cones in various shapes and sizes
  • Spray adhesive
  • Glitter in assorted colors
  • Ziploc bags
  • Ribbons or pipe cleaners
  • Hot Glue gun
  1. Cover working area with newspaper.
  2. Put a couple of tablespoons of glitter in a ziplock bag. The bigger the pine cone the more glitter you will need.
  3. Spray adhesive all over pine cone, being sure to get in between the cracks.
  4. Place pine cone in the ziplock bag with the glitter and seal. Make sure it is sealed tightly.
  5. Let your little one shake to their hearts content or until the pine cone is covered in glitter.
  6. Remove pine cone and set aside to dry completely.
  7. Repeat as many times as desired.
  8. When dry, attach a ribbon with the glue gun to hang on the Christmas tree or fold a pipe cleaner in half and glue the center of the pipe cleaner to the bottom of the pine cone.
  9. Use the pipe cleaner to fasten to the tree branch. (see picture)

Pretty Beaded Icicle ornaments
  • Metallic, crystal or opaque beads in assorted shapes and sizes
  • Metallic pipe cleaners
  • Large sequins of any shape (Stars in Picture)
  1. Thread one large sequin on to the pipe cleaner. Fold up about 1/4” of the pipe cleaner to make a knot (so the sequin does not slide off).
  2. Thread on beads in desired pattern until you reach your desired length. Be sure to leave about 3” of pipe cleaner at the top to make a loop.
  3. Bend pipe cleaner over to just reach the last bead. Twist the end to hold in place. Now you should have a loop to hang your icicle on the tree.
